Sad that Fish and Wildlife have that moniker shouldn't it be the Department of legal Wildlife Killing?

Most wildlife on Fish and Game hit list do more good than harm. For example according to State Farm insurance there are an estimated 1.23 million deer-vehicle collisions that occurred in 2012 costing more than $4 billion in vehicle damage, according to auto insurance records. Also they report 200 deaths due to car- deer collisions. The media goes totally berserk if a person gets mauled by a cougar but they never mention the positive side of cougars of actually saving lives by keeping the herd down ( they eat about 1 deer every 9 to 12 days). But a large deer population keeps hunters interested enough to buy licenses and tags, so you see shooting cougars is a good thing for the Game dept but just may be causing additional car accidents. I have no proof of this just seems logical I live in the woods and cougars often passing my cabin since a lot of deer traveling my trail. I know cause I have wildlife cams out all the time keeping track of my night time neighbors. I work around the cabin and hike the trails without a gun, still alive at 78.

Wow, an amazing  boat built from a single 2x4.  Get that table saw out, several 2x4''s and a sheet of good tarp and build a very lightweight fishing boat.  Don't forget the life vest.
To get an overview watch the videoSome explanations:First, sorry for my English.I built this boat for a 2x4 contest. The rules said I can use a real 2x4 , so my 2x4 was 5cm x10cm and 8 feet (240cm) long. The rules said also I can use 10% other material, this is the reason why I covered it with this ugly plastic bag and I used duck tape so I can remove the plastic bag easily after the contest. The design was really bad and I do not recommend it. I...

Fall at the cabin. Saw a deer/elk swim upstream rapidly for 30 yards. Did not see a predator. Hmmm.

Red Pepper Pasta with Mushroom and Spinach

Ingredients

4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
10 ounces mushrooms, any variety will work, cut into thin slices
6 ounces fresh spinach
3 roasted red bell peppers, either jarred or roasted and skins removed
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
10 ounces dried pasta
Instructions

Bring a large pot of water to boil.
Heat the 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a heavy bottom skillet over medium high heat.
Add the mushrooms and saute for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms are golden brown and caramelized. Reduce the heat to medium and add in the fresh spinach. Depending on the size of your pan, you might need to add the spinach it batches. Stir the mushrooms and the spinach together until the spinach has wilted. Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed.
In a blender or food processor, combine the roasted red bell peppers, garlic, salt, pepper, remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and vinegar. Blend for 1-2 minutes until the ingredients become smooth. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Add the sauce to the pan with the mushrooms and spinach and stir to combine.
Add the pasta to the boil water and cook according to the package directions. Once the pasta is cooked, reserve 1/2 cup of the pasta water and drain the pasta. Add the cooked pasta and remaining water to the mushroom mixture and toss to combine. Adjust salt and pepper if needed and serve.

Buba and Monty could be worse.
 
Well the work began in my home today. First coat of paint done and Greg, the handyman, is taking the tiles home to cut in his garage...no garage dust +Armida Evony and +Jo Dunaway. Yay!

He's asked if it's OK to come back at 8 a.m. to do the second coat tomorrow morning and I told him I'm not a morning person, so he said: How about 8:15? Handyman humor!

The place is torn up again. When will I learn?

I love this guy.  First president and only to seriously consider energy issues. We should have listened to him.  Now right on about our corporate government (can't say our government anymore).
 
According to the former president, Americans are now experiencing "a complete subversion of our political system as a payoff to major contributors."

Wow look at that crowd.
 
Went to a Bernie Sanders campaign event last night.
Some of his key ideas.
1.  Let's make it easier for young people to go to college, than to go to jail.  And let's make college tuition free for those who qualify to enter the university.
2.  Let's stop running the country so all the wealth goes to the top 1/10th of 1%
3.  Let's look at areas (like childcare and family leave) where the US lags behind best practices in the West, and fix that.

Lots of other good stuff that will vastly improve things for ordinary working people.  If you think the US will benefit from this, please look into sending Bernie a campaign donation, and voting for him.  You'll need to change your registration to Dem to vote for Bernie.  Even in states with open primaries, that doesn't apply to Presidential contests (according to what I heard last night).  Bernie needs to defeat Hillary in the primary first.

And lets improve our infrastructure so millions of taxpayers will actually reap the rewards of their tax money so instead of spending hours behind congested miles of highways they can get home to their families with a smile on their face.
